slow PC? Close Browsers

The commonest reason of slow PC / laptop is too many browser windows open – in too many browsers. It does not matter if it is IE, Edge, Firefox, Chrome or Safari… all of them are like an operating system! Just close them first. Find out the actual browser pages you want and re-open them. That’s it.

I have just the browsers open. No other apps. Each browser has just ONE site open.
IE = CNN.com, EDGE = Amazon.in, CHROME = YouTube.com, Firefox = portal.office.com

We tend to forget how many sites we have opened in how many browsers! Be mindful of that and you are good to go.

Goodbye, IE.

Internet Explorer does not have a role to play any longer. Unless a third-party application specifically demands it. In my context, nobody is demanding it.
Moreover, it is more erratic, unpredictable and unstable, even with Microsoft sites.

I know Unpin is not required when I am uninstalling the application itself.
But still, just to emphasize the point!

I removed it completely.
